ISC BIND 9.10.5-S1 < 9.11.5-S6 Assertion Failure Vulnerability

high Nessus Plugin ID 124562
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote name server is affected by an assertion failure vulnerability.


ISC BIND versions 9.11.5-S5 and earlier are affected by an error in the nxdomain-redirect feature in versions which support EDNS Client Subnet (ECS) features. In those versions which have ECS support, enabling nxdomain-redirect is likely to lead to BIND exiting due to assertion failure.


Upgrade to ISC BIND version 9.11.6-S5, 9.11.6-S1, or later.
